Jimmy Fallon Dubs 'Lincoln' Trailer with Pee-wee Herman's Voice (Video)

The Spielberg-directed trailer gets a comedy makeover.

Jimmy Fallon's uncanny Pee-wee Herman impression was put to good use once more, with the Late Night host now redubbing the Lincoln trailer. (Last time around, it was Fallon-as-Pee-wee doing the voices for The Dark Knight Rises trailer.)

The result: the man from the log cabin ends transforms into the man-child from the Playhouse, and laughter ensues.

It's worth noting, however, that the real Lincoln was said to have a voice that was "shrill, squeaking, piping, unpleasant" -- which accounts for Daniel Day-Lewis' high-pitched intonation in the original trailer.

But perhaps Pee-wee was even closer to the real thing?
